Ensure their sacrifice is not forgotten
Help to create a lasting, living tribute.Show your support
Join our most exciting and ambitious woodland creation project to create a living memorial to the First World War.
Langley Vale in Surrey will be home to our English Centenary Wood, where we are creating a special living memorial called Jutland Wood to recognise the Navy’s contribution to the UK past and present.
Standing proudly will be a grove of trees planted in dedication to all of the Navy personnel who served in the conflict – ensuring the land remembers those who fought for their country at sea. You can contribute to the memorial by dedicating a tree at Jutland Wood.
Jutland Wood is named after the Battle of Jutland, fought in the North Sea off the coast of the Jutland peninsula, Denmark in 1916. Some 6,097 trees will be planted – representing the 6,097 British serviceman killed in the battle – but the wood will serve as poignant place of recognition for all naval personnel, a lasting legacy to the entire navy’s contribution to our country.
